TEG member sees Scientific Beta criticism revealing net zero laggard

first_imgScientific Beta is lagging behind on one of the most important green finance developments in recent years, an independent member of the technical expert group (TEG) whose EU climate benchmark proposals were scathingly criticised by the smart beta index provider last week has said.One of a barrage of criticisms made by Scientific Beta was of the carbon exposure metric proposed by the TEG, whereby carbon intensity is calculated on the basis of a company’s Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions divided by its enterprise value, including cash (EVIC).Criticisms of the metric included that it creates sector biases, is volatile and may render unworkable the self-decarbonisation requirement TEG has proposed for the climate benchmarks, and “does not do justice to issuer-level climate change efforts”.Describing the metric as “exotic”, Scientific Beta argued there was “no scientific or business basis” to use it instead of a widely-used version of weighted average carbon intensity (WACI) based on Scope 1 and 2 emissions and using revenues as the denominator. Scientific Beta said self-reported Scope 3 emissions data is too scarce and lacking in quality and consistency to support portfolio decision-making and that requiring Scope 3 emissions to be included in the carbon intensity calculation could lead to “disregarding the efforts made by companies to mitigate their greenhouse gas emissions”.Scope 3 emissions are all of an entity’s indirect emissions except those from purchased energy – for example, in the case of fossil fuel companies they include emissions produced when an individual drives an internal combustion engine car.‘Commercial self-interest’Andreas Hoepner, professor of operational risk, banking and finance at University College Dublin, is one of two members of the European Commission’s sustainable finance TEG who was appointed in a personal capacity and the only such individual on the benchmarks sub-group.Hoepner said: “It is stunning that Scientific Beta can write over 70 pages with 99 footnotes on EU green finance policy and fail to even mention the EU’s net zero 2050 aim, which was adopted last year.”“If they had taken the EU’s net zero 2050 aim as their starting point instead of their commercial self-interest, they might have come to a different conclusion on crucial aspects such as the Scope 3 emissions of the fossil fuel sector.”Asked what the TEG’s starting point was with regard to its work on the EU climate benchmark categories, Hoepner told IPE it was the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 1.5°C warming trajectory with no or limited overshoot, which effectively meant carbon neutrality by 2050.The European Commission agreed on a 2050 net zero ambition in November 2018, with EU member states, except Poland, endorsing this goal late last year.  “It is crucial for Scientific Beta and others to understand that fossil fuel Scope 3 emissions are the primary cause of climate change.”Andreas Hoepner, professor of operational risk, banking and finance at University College Dublin and member of the TEG Hoepner said: “Given the EU’s aim of achieving net zero by 2050, it is crucial for Scientific Beta and others to understand that fossil fuel Scope 3 emissions are the primary cause of climate change. They are the patient zero, to use a coronavirus metaphor.“Hence,” he continued, “fossil fuel scope 3 emissions have to be downsized significantly for the EU to achieve net zero by 2050. Repsol and possibly also BP seem to understand this, as do many asset owners and asset managers.“Scientific Beta has to understand this scientific reality too, if they want to gradually transform themselves into a leader in environmentally responsible investing.”EVIC denominatorHoepner said using revenue as the denominator for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions biases the GHG intensity figure in favour of sectors such as coal, which are exposed to stranded assets when compared with market valuation-based denominators.“In my personal view, this can be considered greenwashing in favour of polluting sectors and is not aligned with the EU’s net zero 2050 objective,” he said.“The recent launches of EU Climate Transition or EU Paris-Aligned Benchmark concepts by index providers that were not part of TEG, such as Dow Jones S&P or Solactive, show that many of Scientific Beta’s competitors can work with our proposed denominator of EVIC.”“Scientific Beta appear rather desperate to avoid the costs of switching from revenue to EVIC,” he continued.The TEG’s final report on benchmarks is meant to provide the basis for the European Commission’s drafting of delegated acts specifying more detailed requirements in relation to the EU climate benchmark categories.Scientific Beta’s report can be downloaded here.GHG emission scopesThe GHG Protocol Corporate Standard classifies a company’s GHG emissions into three scopes:1. Direct emissions from owned or controlled sources2. Indirect emissions from the generation of purchased energy3. All indirect emissions not included in scope 2 that occur in the value chain of the reporting company, including both upstream and downstream emissionslast_img read more

Parlow Cone on Saturday discussed the federation’s decision to repeal a policy that required players to stand during the national anthem.The rule had been adopted by U.S. Soccer in 2017 when national team player Megan Rapinoe kneeled during the anthem in support of Colin Kaepernick’s protests of police brutality and racial injustice. — An Arizona Coyotes staff member has tested positive for COVID-19 and is isolated at home in the Phoenix area. The teams say the staffer is asymptomatic and feeling well. The team says all other staff members or players involved in phase 2 of the NHL’s testing protocol have tested negative as teams prepare to start voluntary small-group workouts on Monday. NHL mandatory training camps can open July 10, pending an agreement to returning to play later this summer.— Jeremy Jeffress, Jordan Montgomery, Kevin Plawecki could be playing for free this season, earning salaries lower than what they already received as advances.

Fitch says the NFL estimates each team’s media revenue at $250 million per season. The number gets bigger later in the contract, and each deal is set to expire in the next two years.So, it’s safe to say more than half of the league’s $15 billion in annual revenue comes from the TV deals shared equally among all 32 teams — unlike Major League Baseball, the NBA and NHL.MLB’s attempts to get the baseball season started are being held up in part by a disagreement over how to compensate players in the likelihood that owners will have no fan-related revenue.In other developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic:— Ash Barty has joined the ranks of high-profile players expressing concern over the staging of the U.S. Open while there’s still so much uncertainty around the coronavirus pandemic.

Ewing emerging as all-around fullback

first_imgStephanie Moebius/The Badger HeraldTuesday afternoon, the Wisconsin Badgers’ offense seemed to be rounding into shape. The shape, at least, expected as the end of spring practice approaches.On the second play of the first-team scrimmage, quarterback Jon Budmayr dropped back, faked a handoff to running back James White and let rip a high-arching balloon of a toss down the left sideline. Budmayr – known especially for his strong arm – would go on to overthrow a few balls this practice, and this one was no different.Yet, fullback Bradie Ewing kept pace with the ball, and just when it was within reach, he extended his left arm and hauled it in. The lefty, one-handed grab was the first of two impressive catches for Ewing Tuesday, and it was arguably the highlight of the entire practice.Now a senior, Ewing has made just that kind of impression as a Badger. He’s consistently there, doing his job – he played in 38 of a possible 39 games his first three years – but he might not be noticed during the process. That, as the history of football has proven, is typically the life of a fullback. Line up in front of the tail back and behind the quarterback, make your blocks and don’t mess up. If the ball’s thrown to you, catch it.Fortunately for the Badgers, Ewing has embraced the constantly ungrateful role.“I just kind of accepted it,” Ewing said. “I kind of score my touchdowns now by having that nice block to spring that runner, something like that. I am a fullback and I have bought into it. I get my success from the team and scoring touchdowns as an offense, more than anything. Just trying to win games.”Ewing has scored three touchdowns of his own – one on a one-yard run against Marshall in 2008, the second on a 7-yard run against Austin Peay last season and the third on a 3-yard reception later in that game. Yet, true to fullback form, Ewing’s most significant contributions stem from his blocking and his leadership.Last year, Wisconsin’s offense was a wrecking ball, a force to be reckoned with – every clich? imaginable was thrown around, and appropriately so. The Badgers ran for 3,194 yards last year (12th in the nation) and averaged 5.5 yards per attempt (seventh in the nation). Their 48 rushing touchdowns were second in the nation, and two running backs (White and John Clay) each eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark. Montee Ball, who missed one game, finished four yards shy with 996.Much of the credit rightfully went to the dominant offensive line, the left half of which has since departed for the National Football League (tackle Gabe Carimi and guard John Moffitt).But no matter how much credit went elsewhere – or how little he received himself – the Badgers give Ewing everything he’s due.“Just knowing that we could count on him,” Ball answered when asked what’s best about Ewing. “Our dive plays, running right behind him – us running backs knew that we could cut right inside of him just about every time because he was going to finish his block. Knowing that you’re running behind someone that’s going to finish their block every time gives you that edge over the defense.”Ewing entered last season known as one of the nicest guys on a team and a dependable blocker. He left it with all those traits but also managed to build a mean streak and emerge as one of the unquestioned leaders on the team.Perhaps most impressive, though, was Ewing’s ability to withstand a challenge from one of his best friends on the team. Early in the season, Ryan Groy, a reserve offensive lineman, supplanted him on the fullback depth chart. Groy started the season-opener at UNLV, and from that early point on, Ewing was pushed to improve.“[Last year] was kind of up and down,” Ewing said. “I started off a little bit slow. They had Groy in there at fullback, and to be able to gain more confidence in myself, come out with a better mentality throughout the season and continue to work to get better, I was able to put myself in a position to help the offense toward the end of the season, the last half of the season. It was really rewarding, just be a part of that offense and part of the team’s success.”To his credit, Ewing never outwardly admitted taking offense at Groy grabbing his spot. The two remained good friends, as Groy said they went hunting a few times during the season.Still, Ewing recognized the challenge and adjusted his play accordingly. He developed a mean streak, eagerly seeking out defenders to block and finishing them off until the play ended. Occasionally, Ewing even took it farther.“There was a part even last season where you’d see him going to look at knocking the other guy out or finishing another guy off,” Groy said. “It was a point where I think he might have got called for a few, but it was to the point where it was just relentless effort and just relentless toughness.”Relentlessly indeed, Ewing morphed from a dependable blocker into a powerful, dependable force who never waited for opposing players to run into him. Rather, he ran into them, and the effect permeated Wisconsin’s offense attack.“It’s real nice running behind Bradie,” Ball said. “If you just watch a game or something, he just goes until he hears a whistle. That’s phenomenal. I’ve never seen a player actually do that before, I honestly haven’t. I tip my cap to him, because that’s incredible. I love running behind him because I know he’s going to get the job done.”As if running behind him wasn’t enough, the Badgers have come to rely on Ewing also as a pass-catcher. He’ll rarely be the first option on pass plays, but after not catching any passes his first two years, Ewing recorded eight for 82 yards and two touchdowns last season. One reception came in the Rose Bowl, where Ewing hauled in a pass from quarterback Scott Tolzien and ran 28 yards to Texas Christian University’s 1-yard line. On the next play, Clay hammered through the goal line and gave Wisconsin its first touchdown of the game.The Badgers ended up falling to the Horned Frogs, but Ewing’s early reception served as a capstone to his evolutionary junior year. Now, Ewing prepares for 2011 not just as a fullback. Instead, he’s a fullback that can block, run, catch and lead. With UW’s offense losing Carimi, Moffitt, Tolzien, Clay and tight end Lance Kendricks to the NFL, that last trait very well could prove to be most impactful for Ewing.“We’re workers, and we try to do our best to just pound people,” Ewing said. “Play after play, we’re going to bring it, and I think a fullback is a good position to start that off at. Hopefully, people are looking to me for that leadership, but I definitely got a long ways to go in the same account.”last_img read more

Women’s soccer bulldozes Oregon State

first_imgBrennen Lopez | Daily TrojanThe No. 7 women’s soccer team hosted Oregon State yesterday afternoon in their first Pac-12 home game of the year, putting in an outstanding performance and defeating the Beavers 4-0.The Trojans (6-1-1) started the game with immediate pressure on the Beaver defense, controlling the ball and possession in the opening minutes of the game.  The first chance of the game resulted from a deflection off a Beaver defender in the second minute.  The breakthrough came in the third minute when junior forward Leah Pruitt opened the scoring for the Trojans.  The ball deflected off multiple Beavers defenders inside the penalty box, and it fell kindly to Pruitt’s foot, where she slotted it into the bottom right corner to give the Trojans an early lead.The Trojans had another golden opportunity in the sixth minute, with a cross entering from the right wing into the penalty area, but no one could get a foot on it.  The early pressure from the Trojans frustrated the Beavers, not knowing how to counter the relentlessness of the Trojan attack.  The next chance for the Trojans came in the 13th minute with a low cross from the right wing entering the penalty box to the right foot of Pruitt.  Pruitt had space inside the penalty area but only managed a shot over the crossbar. The chances kept coming for the Trojans such as in the 16th minute when a shot from freshman midfielder Savannah DeMelo was deflected off the leg of a Beaver defender, going out of play for a corner kick.  Another chance came in the 17th minute as Pruitt was one-on-one with the goalkeeper, having beat her defender.  However, she was brought down inside the penalty box, with the referee deciding not to call a penalty.  A second goal came in the 20th minute off a corner kick from the left side.  The ball flew in the air into the penalty box and an excellent headed effort by senior midfielder Nicole Molen doubled the lead for the Trojans.  A third goal almost came a minute later when the Trojans, once again utilizing the right flank, had a shot roll only inches wide of the right post.The first half continued in this fashion, with an injury to an Oregon State player halting the game in the 27th minute in a somber moment for both teams.  At the end of the first half, the Trojans were dominating the game, controlling possession and maintained their 2-0 lead.                  The Trojans started the second half just as they started the first, retaining possession and creating scoring opportunities.  A prime opportunity arose in the 48th minute with a cross from the left wing was hit with a little too much pace, not allowing redshirt senior midfielder Samantha Rooney to get a head to it.  Another opportunity came in the 50th minute with a Nicole Molen header going above the crossbar.  The Trojans continued to apply massive amounts of pressure on the Beaver backline, with opportunities arising constantly. The Beaver backline finally gave in the 68th minute when a shot by redshirt junior midfielder Sydney Myers, with the assistance of the goalpost, found the back of the net, extending the Trojan lead to 3-0.  Pruitt marked the perfect ending to her afternoon with another goal in the 87th minute, with a low shot beating the Beaver goalkeeper in the left, bottom corner to make the final score 4-0.Overall, it was a very strong and dominating performance for the Trojans, leaving the game with 26 shots (15 on target) while only conceding 2 shots (0 on target).  It was a complete performance from both the Trojans attack and defense, making it impossible for Oregon State to get into a rhythm and provide a fight.  The Trojans will host Oregon on Sunday, hoping for another win to keep their undefeated Pac-12 season alive.last_img read more

With Gavin Sheehan on board, he can take the spoils in the finale at Hereford.____________________________________Where will Russell Yershon enter on the Tipster Challenge leaderboard?
